How to use Scannow sfc...
To do this click on start...run...then type in...sfc /scannow
This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.
go to the run box and type in cmd
instead of hitting the Enter key press Ctrl+Shift + Enter You will be prompted with the obnoxious User Account Control dialog… but it will then open up a command prompt in Administrator mode...then type in sfc /scannow
NOTE THE SINGLE SPACE BEFORE THE /

One of the options on the F8 menu did let me open a Run box. should I try the cmd sfc / scannow thing there?
I also found this- http://neosmart.net/...-disc-download/ could I use this instead of buying the recovery cd?
Sorry for rambling, I'm going crazy right now.

Do I specifically have to buy a DVD disc to burn it onto?
Can you post instructions on how to boot from the disc for me please?
Before I go out and buy the blank disc, I'm going to unistall quicktime and see if that does anything. I'll post again when something changes.
